Remediation Courses

The Examination Regulation (O. Reg. 712/93) requires that candidates who have failed the examinations three times must submit proof of remediation and upgrading to the Registration Committee in accordance with the policy guidelines provided by the Committee before the candidate may retake the examinations.

Policy

Remediation should be adapted to each student’s needs and therefore should not have a set curriculum required of every student.

The candidate will be directed to a tutor who will evaluate/assess the candidate and review the examination feedback regarding areas in which the candidate needs improvement. The remediation course will be developed jointly by the candidate and the tutor based on the diagnostic report provided in the candidate’s most recent examination feedback.

The tutor will prepare a remediation proposal for submission to the College. The proposal will be reviewed to determine if it reflects the areas in which the candidate’s knowledge, skills, and judgment fell below the minimum competency level.

When the remediation proposal has been approved, the candidate will be notified. The tutor will send written verification to the College when the remediation has been successfully completed.

Approved: 6 July 2001

Exception

Ontario Regulation 712/93 (Examinations) made under the Act continues to apply to a person who had, before the revocation of that regulation, applied to take the examinations for the purpose of applying to the College for registration. O. Reg. 266/04, s. 1.

Candidates who paid for their first examination prior to August 26, 2004 are subject to the revoked regulation. The old Ontario Regulation 712/93 is still in effect for these candidates as follows:

(3) A candidate who fails the examinations may apply for re-examination twice. A candidate who fails a third attempt of the examinations must submit, to the Registration Committee, proof of remediation and upgrading in accordance with policy guidelines issued by the College before the candidate may retake the examinations. A candidate who fails the examinations may retake them not more than two years after the failure, but if the candidate presents to the Registration Committee proof of remediation and upgrading in accordance with policy guidelines issued by the College, he or she may retake the examination more than two years after the failure.
